A conference at a Pasadena church to discuss Middle East issues has touched off tension between area Christians and Jews. Many Los Angeles rabbis and other Jewish leaders have criticized All Saints Episcopal Church for agreeing to host a conference sponsored by a Jerusalem-based ecumenical Christian group that advocates a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and nonviolent resistance to the Israeli occupation. Some say it is wrong for the group’s founder to compare the suffering of Palestinians to that of Jesus and the early Christians.

NEWPORT COAST - The Sage Hill School girls' soccer team wound up outscoring its two CIF Southern Section Division 6 opponents, 5-2, this season. But that will have to do for the Lightning, which fell to visiting South Pasadena, 2-0, in a second-round contest Wednesday. The Rio Hondo League champion Tigers posted a 20-3 advantage on shots and dominated most of the possession, particularly in the second half, to extend their unbeaten streak to 20 games. South Pasadena (16-2-6) advances to the quarterfinals for the second straight year.

COSTA MESA - A week after losing three leads and falling in triple overtime in its season opener at Moorpark, the Orange Coast College football team tried coming from behind in its first home contest on Saturday against Pasadena City College. The result, while equally dramatic, was much more successful this time for OCC, which rallied behind sophomore backup quarterback Jon Newsom to claim a 27-23 victory over the Lancers. Newsom threw three touchdown passes to help the Pirates overcome a 17-0 deficit and take a 21-17 lead early in the fourth quarter.

The letters across the Pasadena Poly boys' soccer team's warmup tops spelled out Polytechnic Soccer. Pyrotechnic Soccer might have been more fitting on Tuesday, when the visiting Panthers exploded for two goals in the first eight minutes and went on to record a 4-0 victory over Sage Hill in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 6 playoffs. The four goals were double the previous best output by a Sage Hill opponent this season and represented more than 50% of the total tallies (seven)

NEWPORT COAST — Dr. Drew Pinsky watched the action Friday night at Sage Hill School. Pinsky, the radio and television personality, was happy to sit in the stands watching the game without too much fanfare. He doesn't have as much advice to dish out on the football field. His son Jordan, a senior center for visiting Pasadena Poly, dished out plenty. Poly dominated in the trenches, rushing for 370 yards and handing the Lightning their first loss of the season, 35-14, in the nonleague game.

PASADENA - Coach JR Tolver was livid from the start. After watching his Sage Hill School football team give up huge chunks of yards on Pasadena Poly's first drive, Tolver ate into his players on the sideline. "They're running the same play over and over! Dive! Dive! Dive!" Tolver yelled. "It's going to be 57-0 if we don't stop it. " The Lightning never figured out how to slow down running back Harrison Hodgkins on Friday. The senior pounded Sage Hill for 232 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries.

All season long, Karlee Riggs has been a reliable force for the Orange Coast College women's volleyball team. Pasadena City College Tammy Silva would say the Pirates relied on their standout outside hitter a little too much Saturday in the second round of the California Community College Athletic Assn. Southern Regional playoffs at Orange Coast. "Wherever she was, that's where they were going," Silva said. Orange Coast's one-dimensional offense allowed the Lancers to zero in on Riggs, as the rest of the Pirates couldn't keep the visitors honest.

Chase Wheatley, a Corona del Mar High senior, did his best to play smart at the CIF Southern Section Individual Final Championship at La Purisima Golf Course in Lompoc Monday. The wind only created a more challenging round on the tricky course. But Wheatley continually tried to stick to a conservative game plan in his attempt to advance. Wheatley, just as he did last week, didn't have a great start. But he finished strong. He shot four-over-par 76 and was among the top 28 to advance to the CIF/SCGA Regional Qualifier at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena May 30. He is one step away from the state tournament.

When one California Elementary School first-grader started preparing his Halloween costume, he told his mom he wanted to be a superhero. But Kieran Vogel did not want to be a masked nocturnal crime fighter or hammer-wielding mythical god. The 6-year-old wanted to be a superhero like his dad. He wanted to be Donor Man. "I picked it because my daddy was like a superhero," Kieran said, "because he saved like a hundred or something lives....
